Christmastime is here in Walt Disney World! Today marks the official start of the holidays in the most magical place on Earth, and we are so excited to see all of the holiday magic Disney has in store for us!

There are so many fantastic ways to celebrate Christmas in Walt Disney World! From Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party to Resort hopping to see the delicious gingerbread creations, there is no shortage of Christmas magic in Disney World.

All four of Walt Disney World’s Theme Parks get in on the holiday fun. At Magic Kingdom, you’ll definitely want to check out Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, and Animal Kingdom is a beautiful Park worth checking out at Christmas.

Perhaps the most wonderful Christmas celebrations occur at EPCOT, where Guests can explore the International Festival of Holidays. There are even some special holiday overlays coming to some fan favorite attractions!

This new rollercoaster matches the fun and thrill of the blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy” films. It features our favorite cosmic outlaws: Rocket, Groot, Drax, Gamora, and Star-Lord (a.k.a. Peter Quill). The one-of-a-kind attraction is another milestone in the ongoing transformation of EPCOT.

As much as I’ve (Jamie) tried, I simply cannot accurately describe the experience this attraction provides other than to say: it’s something you’ve never experienced before, and you’ll have to try it to understand! Be sure to check out everything that you need to know about this new attraction HERE.

Disney has announced that Guests will be enjoying this attraction in a fun new way this holiday season.

Guardians will trade in their classic hits playlist for a mash-up of seasonal jams at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT. Guests will blast off to the tune of an awesome holiday single, bringing joy to Xandar and Terra, too.”


While a date was never announced for the start of this fun new holiday overlay at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, hopeful fans thought it could possibly coincide with the start of other holiday celebrations in Walt Disney World. That turned out not to be the case.

The holiday overlay will likely debut November 25, which is the start of EPCOT International Festival of Holidays.
